Food historian, Ester Davies, and Gwynneth Ashby, researcher and writer on the Jane Austen era, sample spruce and blackberry wines and peruse the Knight family cookbook. Viewers of this short clip are treated to the lovely pastoral views of the park land surrounding Chawton cottage, views which Austen would have enjoyed herself while seated in the alcove of what is now Chawton Library.
